My-Big-Fat-Greek Wedding

My Big Fat Greek Wedding is a light romantic comedy about a woman in her thirties (Nia Vardalos) whose Greek Orthodox parents (Michael Constantine and Laine Kazan) flip out, first, because she’s not yet married, and second, because she’s fallen in love with a a non-Greek man (John Corbett). The movie, based on Vardalos’ one-woman show, pokes fun at the crazy things our families put us through, and yet points out how it can be possible to be your own person while maintaing a relationship with one’s family. Anyone who grew up in a big Catholic family will find something to relate to in this sweet and funny film.
